[FFmpeg-user] Errors and artefacts when decoding a .h264 file from security camera

Hi,

I have a security camera file that gives me decoding errors which are very
likely the reason for several macroblocks being broken in the resulting
video (by far not all, you can still recognize the motive).

Are there any command line flags I can try to fix this or shall I submit a
trac ticket with the file?

Thanks,
Robert
